Does it sound like a deal or not. Lee
    If a true Mission cabinet, it's worth it just for that!! The shuttle and slide are available.

    I hope it got a good home, Jon. And that maybe they find the yahoo group or here so they find out the right way to clean it up.

    Oh, yeah, after all the above comments, yesterday I scored a 15 clone locally for free. It's got green decals that are in decent shape, but overall it is absolutely filthy and needs new wires on the foot controller. So, it's not even in the house yet (way too dirty!), and it's gonna take hours to clean it enough to get it inside. So I'll show pictures in a few days. But the decals are cool...it looks very Irish!! LOL

    HUMMMMMM! That's not fair!!!!! Hehehehehe - We didn't get to do anything before the race began. . . and sewing 42 strips together with a 45 degree seam into one very long strip is what took all the time! That seemed endless! Once the strips were all pieced, sewing them together was fast! I was sewing all of mine on a FW! I finished 3rd, only because I had to rip out a couple of my 45 degree seams -- they didn't line up right -- and I had a huge twist at the end of the first set to cut apart!

    The green decals you described sound like my Hother machine.
    Can't wait for the pics.

    301s might be speedy, no NO E_MACHINES allowed at the Treadle 500!!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
